Easy DIY Board and Batten Mudroom Wall

Easy DIY Board and Batten Mudroom Wall

With this easy tutorial you can install a DIY board and batten mudroom wall anywhere. It only takes a couple of hours. There is a lot of chaos and traffic that come through the Stenner farm doors. On any given day we have a kid’s sporting event, goats sneaking in the back and lots of mud on our boots. After the barn and chicken coop chores are done, we needed a dumping ground for all of our dirty gear. Most families could use a mudroom wall, even if their neighborhood builder didn’t give them one. You can simply add one yourself in one afternoon.

An Easy Buffet Makeover With Paint

I will never forget the day CJ pulled up with this stained solid oak buffet. From a distance it was stunning, and I was so excited. As I moved closer, I noticed heavy water damage, deep gouges and lots of imperfections. In the past we’ve restored antique pieces and kept the original dark stain. I love the light and chippy vibe of white painted finishes, but I usually cannot bring myself to cover the beautiful vintage wood grain of older treasures, especially if it's a family heirloom.  Because of the water damage and no family connection to the piece, this was the ideal time to paint a buffet.
